This was really interesting stuff, and I know WAY more about skateboarding now. It was cool to see how it all started, and then very quickly became mainstream, commercialised and often exploited. The original skateboarders profiled were a bunch of supremely talented people, although to be honest, it doesn't sound like you'd want to be friends with many of them.
Im not a skateboarder, but if you are, you will definatily enjoy this, and probably not care about whether they were nice people or not.
If you want a similar kind of sporting doc, but about talented AND (so it seems) pretty nice bunch of people, watch Riding Giants.
This is a cult film tho, so if you are inclined, its worth wathcing.
